and show everyone mrs. obama coming into the room. and we saw her going down to resounding applause. and i want to point out, you're looking next to her will be kaitlin roig, who is the first grade teacher at newtown who told me about taking her 15 first graders into the bathroom, shielding them from the gunman, saying, "the good guys are on their way." >> and the president knows he has a job to do on ending gun violence. he's laid out proposal, including universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, a limit on high capacity magazines. i want to bring in our own matthew dowd right here. he knows that most of that or a lot of it is not going to get through this congress. >> this interesting thing about this speech is, he'll obviously have a litany of things but he's hanging his hat, from what we can tell, about who he has in that crowd and who he's brought in. on gun control legislation. it's going to be a very difficult thing to get some of that stuff through, even in the aftermath of the crisis we face. >> even among, donna brazile joining us tonight, even among democrats, especial
motion be in order, that president obama be immediately notified of the senate's action and the senate then resume legislative session. the presiding officer: is there objection? without objection. mr. reid: i note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. a senator: i ask the call of the quorum be vitiated. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. coats: last night president obama had the opportunity to present to the american people a plan and vision for how he intends to strengthen the state of our union. while i'm pleased he finally turned his focus back to the ongoing jobs crisis in our country, i was left feeling disappointed and frustrated that the president continued to call for higher taxes to pay for more and more government spending. i don't believe the president acknowledges or at least he didn't last evening, the seriousness of our debt and fiscal crisis. we are nearly $16.5 trillion in debt, and $6 trillion of that debt is from the president's spending over the last four years. and he now has four more years to go. yet rather than
, not try to shrink some pieces of the pie and enlarge others. and i've never been clear on how mr. obama sees the economy and whether he winunderstands that. if you're going to take away from some in order to give to others, i don't think that will be effective or received very well outside his base. >> a year ago it was the buffet rule. it was warren buffett's secretary in the first lady's box this year it's going to be the likes of a tim cook bringing mcintosh production back to the states. do you think we've edged off of that class warfare a about bit? >> i don't know. i want to hear what the president has to say. i have heard different things but have not read the speech. if he wants to go protectionist, for example, i think that will be poorly received, frankly, again, outside of his own union base and so forth. the tim cook thing is fascinating. i get that. if you bring manufacturing facilities home, that would be great. cut the corporate tax rate that would give them an incentive. regulate less that would give them an incentive to come home. >> certainly he will talk about incenti
malpractice models that can improve patient safety and bring down liability premiums, president obama became the first chief executive in history to direct us to use our authority to provide funding for that effort. and we've got models going across the country. i'm pleased attended, and we will have a full report in the next few months, we have some very promising results from these models which are being scaled up in various parts of the country. many of which were developed, modeled and implemented by physicians. another example is accountable care organizations. when we released the first proposed aco rules, we received a lot of feedback, some of it not very positive, from the physician community. much of it was -- much of it told us that the rules came up short, if you mentioned a few specific areas. you told us we needed to reduce the reporting burden. so we did, cutting the number of quality measures by about half. you told us there have to be an option for smaller organizations that need help with startup costs. so we agreed, creating the advance payment aco model. you told us we nee
, this was summarized in a letter to president obama in '09. bilateral, never unilateral. nothing was ever suggested on a unilateral basis or taken down arsenal, negotiate, verifiable. these are the terms that was in the report. as senator nunn said in his opening statement, and i have alluded generally to this, mainstream thinking of most presidents we've had in the last 65 years, and i go back to ronald reagan, ronald reagan's comments as senator nunn quoted was reduction of nuclear weapons for the obvious reasons. that is why we have engaged in treaties to reduce nuclear weapons. those were not unilateral arrangements. those were bilateral arrangements. and i will continue in the transcript on page 121, line two, where senator ayotte asks, here is what's troubling. you have testified before this committee today that you have never been for unilateral nuclear disarmament. in other words, unilateral actions by the united states of america, yet this report itself which you call an illustration, it's illustration our recommendation or however you want to frame it, is to actually, there are many recom
obama talk about this in his state of the union address. pyongyang raises the stakes with his third nuclear tests. what should be our policy towards directory of? >> first of all, we've got to keep in mind that there's a real serious problem. i can go back to 19981 hours watching north korea develop this nuclear capability and they did a multistage rocket that and when they said it would be 15 years. our intelligence had 15 years before they could do it. intelligence has been low and not. we've got to demonstrate clearly that were going to keep her nuclear arsenal going to number two, missile defense system in place. i have to be very critical of president obama and that he's just kind of decimated our whole defense is to an area of her nuclear capability, you have to keep in mind, greta, and you remember the conversation with medvedev when you can tell putin after i'm reelected all have more latitude to do these rings? he's trying to talk about disarmament. the lesson we learned from this is those guys are serious. it's no longer like it was in the cold war we had the the soviet un
of the obama presidency begins. at least the part the president would like to accomplish and where he sees the nation headed. he faces, of course, a sharply divided congress, sometimes violently so, and a divided viewing audience. here tonight, a nation starting to see some daylight after years of recession, and it's the long, suffering middle class that will be the target of much of his message tonight. we should tell you at the same time, we are following a very tense news event, across the continent on the west coast in the san berardino mountains, gunfire and then a fire over an hour we've been watching this in a cabin in the woods believed to contain the sniper, ex-cop, the military veteran that has terrorized southern california for days. another loss of life tonight. a police deputy there confirmed dead and if this situation is resolved, we're keeping a close eye on it, we will let you know, following the conclusion of the president's remarks. back inside the house chamber we go, we've been watching arrivals tonight. first lady has taken her seat. members of the supreme court. and n
